New York based imprint Microcosm Music is re-opening the minlove netlabel with a quirky, subtle and detailed 3tracker by Ezekiel Honig, Socks and Sandals and Miskate - combining the subtleties of minimal electronics with abstract dancefloor sympathies. Melting together three concise and unique musical statements, the various artist ep is reflecting the highly diverse output of microcosm - ranging from constantly evolving variations of minimal techno, to textural ambience, and electro-acoustic compositions.
Herky Jerky by label head Ezekiel Honig melts a strong straight-forward bassline with meticulously constructed percussive structures and dreamy piano drones - creating a romantic patchwork of dry bass drums, crisp sampling and reverberated instrumental textures full of melancholic deepness. Socks and Sandals edit of Lover (Macrofun Vol.2) strips the original down to its bare bones before turning the straight microfunk-cut into an enraptured microcosm of granulated and delayed percussion effects.
Closing track Ditty Dumdum by Kate Iwanowicz, aka Miskate, enchants with a charming blend of funky grooves, melodic guitar samples and this unmistakeable way of sampling and arranging her own voice that comes to ones mind when thinking of her last releases on foundsound and microcosm.
